How to be snide

I really like this line from a speech by Denis Healey, 93-years old former Labour Chancellor (far too rightwing for me):

I feel sorry for George Osborne despite his politics (pause), and his personality." 
Now that's a beautiful line, beautifully delivered.

By the way, I'm always hugely amused that Dennis/Denis, one of the most boring names available, is derived from Dionysos, God of Wine and Madness. I gather that Healey is rather fond of rather good claret.


Dionysos, God of Wine

Dionysos, God of Madness
